you don't want me like i want you
you never do

he has no god damn clue
this is a one sided kind of affection

that cologne and cigarette smell fires my intentions
my heart can't take this rejection
it needs protection
been trying to escape these feelings but damn
we have such an intense connection

you have no idea how badly i just wanna grab you
look you in your eyes

into your god damn soul and spill it
into your heart, i'll fill it
with all this emotion that's been tearing me apart
lately it's been setting me afire
burning my insides, i'm spilling my guts here
this is exactly what i fear


i fear unrequited love
that feeling of missing someone so god damn much

it hurts my heart
feels like it's bleeding
but i'm proceeding
while you sit back and smile without me
don't give a damn about me

can't take this defeat

i'm tired of my love life being stuck on repeat

this is so bad lmao i wrote this half asleep and the ending was kinda rushed. i'll probably edit it some other time

I got there crying.
You took me in your arms asking

Honey what's wrong
What's wrong
I'm here talk to me
Sweetheart what's going on


My tears were suffocating me
I couldn't speak the words

You gave me a kiss on the forehead
Honey what's wrong
Tell me what's going on
Hugging me tightly

My body wasn't still
I was shaking

You let me cry still holding me
How can I help
Is there anything I can do
What's wrong

I love you
But I want to breakup

You let go of me
You just stare at me
No no no no no
You start crying

That's how I ended it
How I killed what used to be us

You and I were miles apart,
but connected through the stars.
I guess their lights must've burnt out
because now you're nothing but a memory
I sing to a empathetic tune on my guitars.

When your heart is the ocean
it feels like every tide is ready to break,
bloom bruises along the coastline
and send tsunamis through my veins.
There’s so many secrets in my chest
that it hurts to breathe sometimes,
I choke on all that hurt, and I need more
than the salt in my lungs.
Truth be told, it’s lonely on the edge
where everything is green and
you’re just another shade of blue,
so ready to destroy (but not
in the way they want you to).

your name
no longer tastes like fire
on my tongue;
it tastes
like the ashes you left
the first time
you burned me.

YOU
told me
YOU
like me,
and i couldn’t
help
but wonder
why.
why
me?
what is it
about me
that could
land
YOUR
perfect,
loving
heart,
all wrapped up
in a bright pink
ribbon
at my
doorstep.
i do not deserve
YOU
or
YOUR
love.
i have
wanted
YOU
to be mine
for the
longest
time,
and now that
YOU
are mine
for the taking,
i know i can
not have
YOU.
i sent
YOUR
heart back,
the box unopened,
and cried myself
to sleep,
because i love
YOU
so much
and yet i let
YOU
go.

and YOU watched

me as i looked

so small

standing

under

the twinkling night

sky

catching shooting

stars on my

toungue,

wishing

that this

night

would

go on

forever

like the endless diamond

sky

that YOU

kissed

me under,

the moonlight

casting a faint

glow

on YOUR breathtaking

face

as YOU

promised

to love me

forever,

the same

moonlight

illuminating

a trail of

tears

sliding

down my

cheeks

as YOU

break

that promise,

break

my heart.

YOU

told me

YOU

would give me

a star

to wear

on my left

finger,

and that

i had a

smile brighter

and more beautiful

than

saturn's rings,

and now i

watch

YOU walk away,

leaving me

alone

under

our moon.

YOU told me

i was YOUR

everything,

and now

i am

merely

another star

in YOUR

ever expanding

galaxy.

my thoughts: wildflowers.
i have a whole garden,
bright
and colorful,
dedicated to YOU,
and everyday,
more
and more
flowers grow
until
every
waking
moment
was spent
thinking of YOU.
i wanted
YOU
to know.
i wanted YOU
to feel the same
emotions
as me.
so i finally
worked up
the courage
to hand YOU
a bouquet
of those
wildflowers,
the stems
tied together
with
a ribbon.
i waited
with a nervous smile
and watched
as YOU
set the flowers aside
to
die.
YOU didn’t even
bother
to water
them.
now
i keep
my garden
guarded
with a
picket
fence,
and YOU
missed YOUR chance
to stop
and smell
the roses
so don’t
even try
coming back
because
i won’t let
YOU
in.

when i love
i throw myself in flames

but i've learnt that
i don't need to

i can save that passion
i can save myself for someone
i choose

i am my own hero.

Wide eyes wandering,

To settle upon such an empty space,
Yet willingly, they must trace,

That vast collage,
The most toilsome jigsaw,

How loving that imagery,
Our hearts pieced together,
To accept you,
As my beloved forever,

A puzzle untimely broken,
Lost to a box, Eternally unspoken,

Yet, afterimages a-flickering,

You inhabit this place,
My forsaken heart, an utter disgrace.
